I am hiding, behind a mask, in a shell.

As long as i keep smiling

they'll never have to know

I'll keep it all inside me


The pain will never show

I'll act as though im normal

I'll hide inside my shell

No one will ever think to ask


so i'll never have to tell

I will hide behind my mask

I will live a life of lies

No one will have to see my anger

no one will hear my cries


And in the darkness of my room

I will hide beneath the bed

Though literally I am alive

Inside me i feel dead.
